    Pros

    Good working environment. The vast majority of people who work here are easy to work with, kind, and sharp. I appreciate the flexibility of remote work.

    Cons

    The company currently doesn't have a functional HR structure. It's not super clear how to advance in your career. And the overall long terms goals of the company have changed two or three times in the last year I have been here.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the career trajectory thing. Many people are frustrated by how ill defined the is!
